As a class, we have been discussing our favourite things about being back at Brabyns. As part of this, we had a debate about learning in school versus learning from a computer and our ideas were interesting. We decided that we much prefer the opportunity to be in school with our friends and teachers any day over working from our chromebook. Take a look at some of the things that the children had to say about their best moments about being back at school.
